Custom Connectors Path

Hi there!

Where is the setting for custom connectors folder stored?

I've broken something in Power BU desktop and can't see  my connectors now. Reinstalling does not help.

Re: Custom Connectors Path

I've found out what the issue was by myself.

I had my custom connectors in the folder [Documents]\Microsoft Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors and PBI desktop saw them without problem.

Once I installed a third-party connector it created a folder without the 'Microsoft' word: [Documents]\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors. After that PBI Desktop takes a custom connectors from this folder and ignores my connectors. All I did is copied my connectors into that new folder and now it works well.

To me, looks like a bug as in according to documentation connectors must be placed in the [Documents]\Power BI Desktop\Custom Connectors folder.

Why does PBI desktop get a connectors from other folder?
